"You are My Sunshine"
This song has been covered by many people, most notably Johnny Cash (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5TUzB2fBUpY). The song overall evokes nostalgic emotions as one copes with the loss of a loved one and how much the departed had meant to the speaker. The iconic part of the song, the chorus, reminds the speaker about how much the speaker loved the departed and how the departed was essentially the light of the speaker's life. Jimmie Davis (1899-2000) had composed and sang this piece throughout his career and was mainly associated with him despite the huge number of people who have recorded this song; here is a video of Davis performing the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0HLEJCgGws *Exact date of release of the recording unknown*
